At Floreat, we encourage the whole family to be involved to enjoy the beach and all the activities available.
Nippers should bring these basic requirements to all surf club activities.
Each Woodside Nipper is provided with a High-Vis vest and coloured cap. Floreat SLSC also provides all equipment including boogie boards, soft "foam" boards and composite competition boards.
Floreat SLSC relies on volunteering to keep participation affordable for all families. We encourage all our families to get involved as much as possible throughout the season.
Volunteering at the club can take many forms including (but not limited to) as an Age Group Manager, Competition Official, Coach, Water Safety, Beach Set-up, Canteen Manager, Age Group Coordinator, Admin Assistant and First Aider. During the Nipper season each Age Group is rostered about 2 times to help with beach setup/pack-up and canteen on a Sunday morning. Your Age Group Manager will let you know when and ask what task you would like to help out with.
Nipper groups require at least 1 qualified Water Safety Person for every 5 nippers for all water activities. The club generally holds adult training courses for those interested in being water safety for Woodside Nippers early in the season.
Registration for Woodside Nippers at Floreat occurs each September. Please be aware that the nipper program is not a learn-to-swim school but learning about the ocean and waves.Join now
